Elegantly curved, narrow of neck and sinuous of sipping straw, this set of 4 Glass Port Sippers makes a perfectly elegant gift for anyone who enjoys sitting back on a cold winter evening with a glass of port – or who likes throwing dinner parties with all the guest-impressing trimmings. Made from hand-blown glass and beautifully gift-boxed, they’re just the thing to bring out with a bottle of port and the cheese course. And while port is the natural choice, dessert wines and liqueurs can also be enhanced by being sampled through a sipper.
Why are they that (frankly a little strange) shape?
Dating back to 17th century Europe, the original port sippers were called Schnapps Pfeiffen and were traditionally made from ceramic, but the design principles remain the same. The curvy, bellied shape and narrow neck are designed to prevent the port from oxidising when it comes into contact with air, while drinking the port from the bottom of the glass means you experience the fullest possible flavour.
And… how do you drink through them?
You don’t want to show yourself up at posh parties by drinking from the top of the glass – oh, the social shame! If you’re invited to an elegant soirée and are presented with one of these, don’t panic (and absolutely don’t drop it, because they’re as delicate as they look). Instead, channel your inner Sherlock Holmes, perch the bowl between your fingers and sip daintily through the opening at the top of the curvy little ‘pipe’ at the side. Faux pas duly dodged!
